Is anyone running the desktop webrotator software on Mac OSX catalina? I want to update and this is the only software I am worried about not running.

Hi! Yes, indeed... so far all reports and internal testing suggest that SpotEditor won't run on Catalina unfortunately. We're investigating :ugeek:

Hi, how long will it take to make it run on Catalina. Unfortunately I urgently need to make the rotations. Do I have any alternatives?

Hopefully within a month we will have some sort of a workaround.. sorry about this! Until then, Parallels Desktop or similar software would be the only option on Catalina.

Understood. The root of the problem is this issue with mono (a third-party module we're using) that can't yet support the new Catalina 64bit only restriction for certain functionality that we rely on. We're attempting to compile mono ourselves and fix the issue on our end which is quite tricky. Stay tuned...

Quick update! We plan to release our new SpotEditor for Mac as part of the upcoming v3.6.4 release in January. It's not the full rewrite that we're still working on for both Windows and Mac, but it's dramatically improved...

No more mono, XQuartz / X11 dependencies, simple one-click secure installation, much better output image quality, fast UI with features that were not on Mac for years. And it works on Catalina.. 8-)
